Female U of Chicago student robbed, survived

I’m sharing this with my daughter. She carries a knife and taser but situational awareness is her one and only true friend.

“I was grabbing maybe for my phone, maybe the gun, it’s really a blackout moment for me, and I realize that I was able to grab the magazine out of the gun.”

Seems to me what saved her was the thug’s pistol can’t be fired with the magazine removed even if there is a cartridge in the chamber.


Teach her arterial anatomy and make sure she twists the knife when inserted then twist and remove!
Wait 2 - 4 minutes, to get to safety ( of course ) dial 911.
Very angry today! No empathy for villains!
